Shakudō is the Japanese art of patinaed copper plate set in gold depicting a story captured in metal. Pieces became popular and collected with fascination throughout Europe in the mid-nineteenth century.  Shakudō has been used on large decorative works like vases but here we see the striking technique used masterfully for jewelry.
